About the Event


Welcome to the Venture Unknown recovery workshop! This is your first step in learning how to offroad responsibly, recover safely, and with the proper gear.


Too many people go offroad without the proper knowledge and gear of how to self recover their rig if the unfortunate may happen. Go out enough and its not a matter of if , but when you will need these skills. We want to teach you the lessons many of us have learned BEFORE something happens. Using the wrong gear, the wrong way could lead to serious injury or death.  Our motto..... Planning will only get you so far.....PREPARATION IS EVERYTHING. We have learned through our many travels of some of the toughest trails in America what to do and what NOT to do.We are passionate about passing these lessons onto you.
